Bespoke Elfin Kitchens supplied for student accommodation in Brighton

Elfin Kitchens has supplied 84 customised Studioline kitchens to the Circus Street student accommodation project in Brighton. The kitchens were fitted by Henry Construction Projects Ltd across four separate apartment blocks, which were completed in May 2019.

The customer service really was exceptional.

As part of the design and specification, Henry Construction Projects Ltd required Elfin Kitchens’ assistance in providing units that would support a bulk head above the kitchen area. As a result, Elfin designed and supplied a stainless steel lid to fix the bulk head to, while also providing a cut-out in the back of the cupboard above the extractor hood, allowing for the electrical connections to be completed from the front of each unit once they were fitted in their final positions.

Commenting on the installation, Roy Donaldson, Project Manager at Henry Construction Projects Limited, said: “This is the first time we have used Elfin Kitchens, and we are certainly impressed with everything the company has provided – from the quality of the kitchen units themselves, right through to their exceptional levels of customer support.”

He continued: “We worked with our client to select the supplier that offered the best product for the application in hand, and Elfin Kitchens ticked all the right boxes. Their kitchens are compact and made from high quality steel, plus they were excellent in terms of availability. Then, when we had to alter the bulkhead designs, Elfin were able to do so without any issue, while ensuring the project remained on schedule without incurring any additional costs. Their customer service really was exceptional, everyone was so helpful and quick to respond. I recommend them very highly and would certainly use them again in future.”

The bespoke kitchens were based around Elfin’s ‘Premium 1500Studioline range, incorporating high quality appliances, including a refrigerator, sink and tap, plus a choice of solo or combination microwave, oven and grill. In addition, all models are supplied with optional soft close drawers and/or ceramic hotplate.

All Premium 1500 Studioline models are also available in a range of colours, from gloss powder coated White, Claret and Slate Grey, to matt powder coated Sand and Bronze. Starting at 900mm wide, up to 1500mm, compact kitchens from Elfin save space and offer great flexibility, with right or left-hand versions available, as well as hotplates, dishwashers, combi-ovens and additional storage units.

The Studioline comprises a double-sided frame manufactured from brushed stainless steel, with powder coated infill panels to coordinate with the kitchen colour(s). The splashback, upper pelmet and lower pelmet are also made from brushed stainless steel, while the wall cupboards are constructed from powder coated steel to match the kitchen.
